YARMOUTH — The Town Council will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 23, to hear comments and respond to questions about proposed school facilities improvements and financing plans.

The meeting will be held in the Yarmouth High School cafeteria. 

Two complementary proposals are under consideration. The first would authorize $39.8 million in bond financing for renovation and expansion of Yarmouth Elementary School, expansion and installation of security measures at Yarmouth High School, a capital roof project at Harrison Middle School and restroom upgrades at Rowe School. 

The second would be contingent on approval of the first and would ask voters to authorize up to $12.2 million in additional bonds for construction and expansion of Rowe School, Harrison Middle School, and a capital roof project at Yarmouth High School.

Information about the proposed projects can be found on the school website at http://www.yarmouthschools.org/facilities­committee.
